. >> the dana show joins us. nice to see you, dana. >> dana, a lot of attention on the president's 15 or 20 minutes or half hour on "the tonight show." of course today was at camp pendleton speaking to soldiers. that gets most of the attention. do you have the sense that the people you speak to on your radio show are satisfied that his attention is full speed ahead on the american people? >> no, people are not satisfied and it was really smart of him to go on jay leno. he can say he answered questions without really having to answer questions concerning all of the scandals about benghazi. the people who don't watch the headlines, they get a couple of seconds on the local news, but they stay up to watch late night television. answering things without really having to answer. the people who are most active and register and go door-to-door, those people who energize debates and elections, they are very unsatisfied. they feel that no questions are being answered. people are disgruntled. there is no transparency by this administration as the most transparent ever. >> where is the white house pre
. heck of a job, gop, too bad you can't blame your way into winning an election. joining me now are dana mill bangs and maria teresa kumar. thank you for being here. >> it's absurd, because everybody knows he was in indonesia learning to become a muslim during that time. many thought that saddam -- and if you're listening to fox news every night, you may not hear that exactly, about you you're led in that direction, and i think that's part of the echo chamber we are hearing now. if people are not particularly informed, there's no telling what they might actually come up with, but this one is delicious. >> it seems like this is really telling, when you have people that can have a reasonable portion of the public in a given state, actually believe one who wasn't even in offense may have been responsible for something, this is a serious statement. >> this is absolutely part of the larger agenda of revisionist history that the republican party is doing it, in absence of providing real solutions to the country as problems. the more they can blame president obama, whether or because you're act
his own party. joining me now, dana milbank. dana, do you think we can expect the donald to send some private investigators up to calgary? >> oh, i certainly hope so, reverend. i think this is a juicy skangds. ted cruz lived there until he was 4 years old. we can only wonder what loyalties he picked up there. is he loyal to the queen? does he secretly go home to texas and drink molsons and say words like eh? >> ted cruz went out and gave this to a texas newspaper to try to put this brewing controversy behind him, but he actually created one that didn't exist before because now it turns out he's legally a dual citizen. he's also a citizen of canada. >> angela, donald trump was the king of birthers, but listen to what he said about senator cruz. >> ted cruz, born in canada. >> yeah. >> is he eligible to be president of the united states? >> well, if he was born in canada, perhaps not. i'm not sure where he was born. >> he was definitely born in canada. >> okay. then you'll have to ask him that question, so perhaps not. >> ted cruz's mother was an american. >> that will be ironed out. i
-chair chad brown joins me along with the great dana milbank. chad, when id think this steve king thing is so fraught with stuff. here's a guy whose brain puts together this weird simultaneous equation. people come across the border from mexico or somewhere else all of a certain size, but they're that big wide legs that he compares to of all the fruits in the world, cantaloupe and their carrying 75 pounds of marijuana. i was trying to figure out how much 75 pounds of marijuana would look like. it would be bigger than this whole room. 75 pounds. how does he put his head around all these negative thoughts just to show how much contempt he has for latinos? think he's smiling because i'm smiling. it's weird. it's weird. your thoughts. tell me why you quit the party, by the way. >> well, it was a decision that was very personal for me. i spoke with several friends, family members, a pastor. i felt uncomfortable with a lot of the hateful rhetoric, and with these issues, the immigration issue, for example. it's the rhetoric, and not just from the representative king but social media is everywhere wi
with reaction, dana lash and christie setzer is with us. he sounds like scouring the budget to save all that money. it reminds me of o.j. looking for the real killers in the golf course. he's living a pretty extravagant lifestyle, isn't he? >> i don't think he is. i think he's living the same lifestyle as anyone else who's graced the office at the president. >> it sends a confusing message. >> conservatives seem to have a pretty confusing stand on this issue. he's been on vacation four months out of every year. one third of the -- >> you can't count camp david. >> george bush was on vacation. whereas president obama takes two to three weeks per year, about the same as the rest of us. >> we have to set that record straight. >> the same as the rest of us. >> we have to set that record straight. christie, bless your heart. >> i would love for you -- >> george bush didn't go to hawaii, he didn't go to martha's vineyard. he didn't go to atlanta. >> christie, let her talk. >> he didn't go to all these places, you know where he went? he went to his ranch in texas. you know what he did on his r
. let's brang in our chief congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, you just heard jim talk about the vice president of the united states. he goes up to capitol hill and he briefs the leadership, the leadership of the house and i guess the senate, the top people there, including the key members of the intelligence committees. >> i talked to a source who said this is where they were first told by the vice president of the united states and some senior state department officials about this threat which the source who i talked to said was incredibly significant. it was clear from the get-go this was going to be something that caused a lot of concern. i talked to other congressional sources briefed through other avenues and venues who say that this is something that the administration clearly needed to do. you heard jill talk about the fact that this is so sweeping in part because they want to make sure they don't get caught flat-footed like they did in benghazi on 9/11 last year. even republican sources who i talked to say that this is absolutely the right thing to do, appropriate re
the country look small. made the presidency look small. >> dana, nice to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> a lot of attention on the president's 15 or 20 minutes or half hour of time he spent on "the tonight show." today he was at camp pendleton. but last night gets the attention. do you have the sense that the people you speak to on your radio show are satisfied that his attention is full speed ahead on the american people? >> people aren't satisfied. it was actually smart of him to go on jay leno. then he can say he answered questions without really having to answer questions concerning all of the scandals, questions about benghazi. it was softball. that's for the low information voter, the people who don't watch the headlines. they will get it from a couple of 30 second s on the local news and that's it. but they stay up to watch late night television. he was able to answer things without really having to answer them. unfortunately the people who are really most active, the ones who go out and register the voters, go door to door, the people who energized the base and energize elect
? joining us, the communications director for the republican national committee and dana lash, host and tea party activist and matt, author of the book "the declaration of independents," how libertarianism and politics can fix what's wrong with america. glad to have all of you guys there. >> i know you're sean spicer. i know that any. let me start with you, republicans are fight right now, particularly in the house and senate whether or not to de-fund obamacare even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea or bad idea? >> in general a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obamacare. we recognize the fact more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up, the problems continue with the implementation of obamacare. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic how to make that happen. some people believe we can de-fund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe you're not able to do that because of the way the funding is structured in terms of mandatory spending. if we can get resolution it s
is on board. what about the other students and their privacy. here with us dana lash, lesley marshall. >> what do we do with the 7-year-old girl who goes into the locker room and there's a 14-year-old boy naked in the locker room because that's where he chooses to be. >> first of all, i don't remember 7 and 14-year-olds being together. but i don't disagree with you on that. >> okay, well, the 10-year-old girl. >> yes, i get it. >> the 10-year-old girl and the 12-year-old boy. >> like i said, i don't envy the governor's having to be in this position to make this decision. and the reason is, although there have been adopted policies in four states, massachusetts, et cetera, in california. this legislation was signed into law by the governor to help reduce the bullying by these transgender children. i'm not sure -- >> well, forget about -- >> i'm not sure what they've done here -- >> .00001%. >> i don't know what kind of crazy world we live in when we decide that the best way to stop bullying is to pass a law where we introduce opposite members of the opposite sex into opposite locker rooms. you'
's go to capitol hill. dana bash is standing by. even before the president has spoken, tan ndana, some republi already starting with some preemptive reaction, shall we call it. >> reporter: that's right. it's going on so far in private in conversations that i've had with some republicans here on capitol hill. the nsa surveillance program is one of the few areas where you've actually seen republicans agree with the president. think that this program is the right thing to do for american security. so expect republicans to say that they're concerned about what jessica reported, widening the transparency of this program. because they say the problem isn't the program, it's the way the president has communicated about it or maybe the better way to say it, has not communicated about it. i think you're going to see some criticism, maybe skepticism on the republican side. the whole question, though, is what democrats are going to do. because they have been probably the most vocal critics of this program. particularly those on the left. you have senators like mark udall of colorado. i just spok
republican congressman dana rorbacker said it at a tea party event other day, the crowd went wild. why climate denialism and global government conspiracy is a fan favorite of the right wing base. >>> plus, pouring smirnoff vodka into the streets.
bolling with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. it is 5:00 in new york city. as you read in the paper, it is "the five"! so last week we told you about the brutal beating of a 13-year-old white kid by three african-american teens on a school bus in florida. on "the five," we have been calling for civil rights leaders and the president to speak publicly about the issue. still haven't heard a word from al sharpton, president obama, eric holder, or the naacp, but over the weekend, rev. jesse jackson stepped up to the plate and said this. >> we tried to make
? >> that is a big part of -- dana rohrabacher was just speaking a few days ago where he basically tipped his hand in this. it's basically if the planet is warming then we'll need government intervention. because we don't like government intervention, ergo the planet goes on warming. a reverse engineered logic that gets them to pose it. >> polls show it's a pressing issue for americans, an issue you examine in the documentary. let's take a look at your work. >> according to a recent gallup poll only one-third of americans are greatly worried about climate change. what can possibly explain this apathy when 99.8% of scientific study support the existence of human-caused global warming? well, some of the credit goes to the so called experts who peddle dubious science to counter any government attaempt to tack it will issue, the deniers. >> if you do nothing about this at all, for the whole of the next 23 years, the worst that will happen, using the u.n.'s own estimates, is a one fahrenheit degree warming, which will be largely harmless and beneficial. >> i think it's really important for people to re
of a threat. but dana lash, she is on the other side of the fence, she tweeted this. this is the same naacp who called a black man beaten by an sieu an uncle tom on tape. what do you think about it? i think we asked people for e-mails. >> brian: a lot of people saying during what president bush's time, look what bill maher and others said about him. lesley writes from florida and says any american sure the right to mock the president. he isn't our king or emperor. >> gretchen: her she will said, when did it become such a big deal to joke about the president? it's been going on throughout our history. really? investigate the clown? >> peter: and if it had been a clown with a bush or reagan mask, nobody would have said a word about it, according to dennis in ohio. charles from oklahoma, i think we should respect the office of the president whether we voted for him or not. >> gretchen: all right. that -- it's a controversial story. i think we'll have comments. >> brian: we know one thing, like it or not, there is a clown at a kinko's right now writing up a resume hoping to get another job. >>
. >> she broke the twitter. >> how do you hit -- dana pa rene no set me up. >> former white house colleague sweet op-ed in the new hit tweet. >> i am sweating. >> i just tweeted. >> i am in a sweat. >> well -- >> what's going to happen now? is it going to -- >> i'm -- >> i only have one follower. >> i'm going to retweet you. >> yeah. will it hurt? >> a lot of people will see it and then get a lot of hateful tweets. >> awesome. >> michael gerson, saying good-bye to my child the youngster. i put on my best face, but it is the worst thing that time has done to me so far. that moment at the dorm is implied that the kindergarten door, at the gates of summer camp, every ritual of parting and independence. but it comes as surprising as a thief taking what you value most. there is no use in brooding about it. i'm sure my father realized it at a similar moment and i certainly didn't notice or empathi empathize. at first he was a giant who held my hand and filled my sky, a middle-aged man who paid my bills. decades after his passing a much loved shadow. but i can remember the last time i hugged him i
